The ninth season of the Indian Super League will return with the home and away format after a two-year hiatus and will welcome fans for all matches for the first time post the pandemic outbreak.

Indian Super League 2022-23 will kick off on October 7th, 2022 when last season’s runners-up Kerala Blasters host East Bengal FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi.

The season will also be special as fans will be welcomed back to the stadiums after a gap of two seasons. To encourage more fans to attend and watch their teams in action, most fixtures have been scheduled on weekends.

This season onwards, a new playoff format has also been introduced in the league, adding two additional matches into the calendar.
